    The full poem that I cribbed from went like this (as I recall):

    Far over mystic mountains crag
    Our comrades hither bit the bag
    With their back molars
    But still our bowlers
    Are held by yonder scallywag

    This appeared in a comic strip in a monthly publication in the mid-80s.

    Boraxxe, you are an old-timer like me, do you recognize it?

    No clue about where you got the first two lines.

    To continue a theme:

    Far over the Misty Mountains tall,
    In a king's subterranean hall,
    I relieved a hobbit of his stress,
    And of the dwarves there I made less.
    Sure sounds like Erebor, so maybe Smaug? He certainly made less of the dwarves when he moved in.

    I can see where you got Smaug (except for the hobbit stress part), but it is not correct. Think of the hobbit and dwarf events happening at the same time.

    Nope, but I can (mostly) see where you got it. Except for the dwarf part, since I didn't think there were less dwarves because of the Arkenstone directly...

    I am wondering if you were playing tricksy with us. How about the incident in Thranduil's halls where Bilbo stuffs the dwarves in barrels and drops them into the river through the trap door. Admittedly I cannot think of the one specific thing from the event that answers the riddle - maybe the trap door?. I'm just looking outside the box, as it were.

    Now your onto it. I accept anything pertaining to the event. The riddle stick is yours.

    Well, for all you young whippersnappers, this little ditty appeared in the Wormy comic strip that was at one time published in Dragon magazine when that periodical had not yet reached issue 100.

    Sounds like Fram's slaying of the dragon Scatha, and then Fram's death supposedly at the hands of the dwarves. So, the 'sire of slayer slain in turn' would be Fram's father, who was Frumgar.

    Lots of talk about mountains in here lately, so let's try to discuss a different type of landscape:

    Here there were towers not two, but three
    And from them one could see the sea.
    One was used to gaze towards a people long asunder
    And in a later age a town was built there under.

    I'll try my best...

    Of the east I came with my sons and my kin,
    When the day was done,
    And the battle was won,
    Treachery proved to be my primary sin.

    I think I might need to give a clue.

    A stab in the dark at the Nauglamir?

    Although if I may have a second guess the one ring itself,
    found by deagal,
    the spoil of our toil I can fit in my mad logic being thought lost and the cause of the war...
    it bleeds your life making you not quite mortal but gifted longer life until you fade...
    and one foe foiled then goes onto lotr and it foiled saruman, sauron and to a degree merry and pippin foiled the orcs and uruks pretending to have it etc etc.

    so if aloud the second guess there is my logic behind the one ring and its rediscovery?

    Sorry know it was a long shot and was a pretty bad guess (it is my first guess at one of these riddles or trivia games)
